Article content

British metal legends Iron Maiden are rolling out their trusty jet, Ed Force One, for a worldwide Book tour in 2016.

Frontman/pilot Bruce Dickinson and his bandmates will perform Friday, April 8 at Rexall Place — marking the band’s 100th headlining concert in Canada. It’s one of four shows in the Great White North.

Tickets range from $29.50 to $97.50 plus service charges. On sale: Friday, Oct. 16 at

Iron Maiden recently released their 16th album, The Book of Souls. It’s Dickinson’s first since successfully battling tongue cancer.

The Brits last performed at Rexall Place in 2012. A day after the show, Dickinson piloted a Douglas DC-3 to Yellowknife with the McBryan family, the stars of History TV’s Ice Pilots NWT.

Dickinson owns an aircraft maintenance company, Cardiff Aviation, in Wales.
